_POETRY.
The Wife.
Forsake thee! Never! Though the mark
Of Cain were stamped upon thy brow;
Though thy whole soul with puilt were dark}
Fear uot'that I will leave thee now.
No; underneath the listening stars
I bound my life, my all to thee;
Not crime and sin can break the bars—
Tis death alone can set me free.
Thine, thine, "for better or for worse,"
Through joy and sorrow, bliss and pain;
Though others hate, and blindly curse,
I’ll love and cleave to thee the same.
And who is left thee now but me?
The world look on in pride and scorn.
Oh, dark indeed thy way would be,
With little hope of brightening morn.
Alone to tread the downward road,
Without one pitying hand to save!
No, dearest, I will share the load,—
Our ]>arting spot shall be the grave.
And when remorse is on thy breast,
And dark thy brow with inward pain,
Oh, be it mine to tell of rest,
And lead thee to the path again !
To smooth the narrow way to peace.
To cheer thy hopes, to soothe thy fears,
Bid thy remorseful anguish cease,
And wipe away thy bitter tears.
Or, if my pl«>ading love is vain.
And deeper, blacker crimes ascend,
My breaking hcartshall tell no tale,
But steadfast follow to the end.
When shadowy death shall break the chain
That bound us in a life-long spell,
The grave alone disputes thy reigu.
Then only will I say—Farewell.
MISCELLANY
Disposal of the dead.—It seems to have
been the favorite object of most ages and coun
tries to preserve from putrefaction the bodies
of those who, in life, had been beloved or re
spected. The Egyptians have succeeded in
their mummies, and the Romans in burning
and collecting the ashes of the dead; but the
more rational process has seldom been consid
ered, viz., that of speedily incorporating with
the earth all the remains of organized matter.
There is a class of animals (IVrmcs) which
forms the connecting link betwixt animal and
vegetable. Instead, threfore, of incasing the
corpse in lead or oak eolfins, or enhalming
to preserve it a little longer from worms, it is
surely more rational, and more according to the
laws of nature, to bury it in such thin or per
ishable materials as may most speedily pro
mote dissolution; and, if the surface of the
Sound were covered with flowering plants,
e grave, instead of an ohject of disgust and
horror, might be converted into a pleasing rec
ord of our past affections.
How delightful is the thought, that while we
are inhaling the fragrance of a rose or violet,
growing in the mould com)>osed of our ances
tors or friends, we may be breathing the pure
and perfumed essence of all that now remains
of what was in life most dear to us.
If all our church-yards were flower gardens,
and every grave a bed of roses, we should
learn to look upon the mansions of the
dead with hope and joy, and not with dread
and disgust; and the good Christian should
follow his Lord's example, whose burial-place
was in a garden.
A Wonderful Clock.—There is now in
the possession of, and manufactured tiv. Mr.
Collins, silversmith, of Gloucester. England, a
most ingenious piece of mechanism—an eight
day clock, with dead beat escapement main
taining power, chimes the quarters, plays six
teen tunes, plays three tunes in twelve hours,
or will play at any time required. The hands
go round as follows: One, once a minute; one,
ooee an hour; one, onee a week; one once a
month; one once a year: shows the moon’s age,
the time of rising and setting of the sun, the
time of high and low w ater, half-ebb and half
flood; and by a beautiful contrivance, there is
a part which represents the water, which rises
and fails, lifting the ships at high water-tide as
if it w-ere in motion, and as it recedes leaves
these little automaton ships dry on the sand.
It shows the twelve signs of' the zodiac: it
strikes or not, chimes or not, as vou wish it; it
has an equation table, showing the difference
of clock and sun every dav in the year. Everv
portion of the clock is of beautiful workman
ship, and performs most aeurately many differ
ent objects which are called into action by the
ingenious proprietor, who is most willing to
describe all its various achievments to any
one who may feel a pleasure in pay ing him a
visit
Don’t Drink much Water.—A person in
good health, and hi the moderate pursuit o
business, does not feel like drinking water,
even In summer-time, if not very thirsty. In
fact, great habitual thirst in summer is the
sign of a depraved appetite, resulting from
bad habits; or it is a proof of internal fever;
and the indulgence of even so simple a thing
as drinking cold water largelvin summer-time,
especially in the early part of the dav, will
Sreduce a disordered condition of the system.
lost persons have exjierienccd more or less
discomfort from drinking largclv of cold wa
ter. If we drink a great deal, we must per
spire a great deal; this perspiration induces a
greater evaporation of heat from the surface
than some have to spare; the result is a chill,
then comes the reaction of fever. Manv a
person arises from the dinner or tea table, in
June, chilly because too much cold fluids
have been taken. Those who drink little or
nothing, even of cold water, in summer, till
the afternoon, will be more vigorous, more
flill of health, and much more free from bodily
discomfort, than those who place no restraint
on their potations.—[Hall’s Jour, of Health.
“I Don't See It.”—Lord Nelson was un
doubtedly the author of this slang phrase. At
the celebrated naval battle of Copenhagen,
Nelson, who was determined to continue the
flght, but whose attention had been called to a
signal of the commanding officer to cease hos
tilities, placed his hand over his good eye, and
pretending to look with the blind one, said;
“I don.t see it,” aud at onee ordered a brisk
renewal of the engagement.
Peter Heine, aDutchman, from a cabin-boy,
rose to rank of admiral. He was killed in an
action at the moment his fleet triumphed over
that of Spain. The states-general sent a depu
tation to his mother, at Delft, to condole with
her on the loss of her son. The simple old
women, who still remained iu her original ols
scurity, answered the deputies in these words:
“I always foretold that Peter would perish
like a miserable wretch that he was; he loved
nothing but rambliug about from one country
to another, and now lie has received the re
ward of his folly.”
“Not Dead Yet.”—Two rather singular
cases of remarkable escape from living burial
are related as having occurred subsequent to
the battle of Fair Oaks. The lx sly of a Colo
nel was found on the Held and brought in.—
Arrangements were made for emlialining it
The process includes the. use of galvanism.
The shock was given. To the astonishment of
all of them the colonel rose and walked forth.
The other case was also that of a colonel who
was found dead on the Held. In deference to
his rank, he was brought to the hospital and
laid among the dead. Ilis friends prepared to
give him a decent burial, and were about to
carry the body out, when the colonel rolled
over, and, in tones more like those of a man
drunk than dead, called out: “Ben, John,
where is my whiskey flask?”—Tribune Cor.
Chubch Music.—In a timely and eloquent
discourse, delivered by a clergyman of this city
lately, the preacher, in illustrating soue of the
prejudices which have existed on the subject
of music in churches, spoke of a very religious
old lady, who, when asked her opinion of the
organ of a church, the first time she had seen
or heard one, replied, “it is a very pretty box
of whistles, but, oh! it is an awful way of
spending the Sabbath!”—llouton Transcript.
“Papa,” said my bright-eyed little girl to me
one day, “I b'lieve mamma loves you better'n
she does me.”
I confess to doubts on that subject, but I
concluded that it was not best to deny the soft
impeachment. She meditated thoughtfully I
about it for some time, evidently construing
my silence as unfavorable to her side.
“Well,” said see at last, “1 s’pose its all right;
your the biggest and it taken more to love
you.”
His’n and iSihs'n.—The vulgar contract ion,
“you’n, her'n, his’n,” are not confined to Yan
kee use, but are common in Berkshire (Eng
land) dialect. They even say sills’ll, ns appears
from a popular Berkshire ditty:
“But t’other young maiden looked sly at me.
And from tier seat she ris’n—
Let's votl and I fro on our way,
And we'll let she go sAtj'n.
We are commanded to let our light shine be
fore men; the man with a red rose keeps his
light shining before himself.

PROSPECTUS
or THE
PORTLAND DAILY PRESS:
KDITID I* Y
JOHN T. GILMAN, recently of the Hath Timer,
AND
JOSEPH B. HALL, of the Aroostook Herald.
The Portland Daily Press is intended to be
au enterprising, vigorous and live Daily Morning
Paper, containing the latest and fullest news by mail
and telegraph.
THE MAINE STATE PRESS
Is a large, well-filled, carefully edited, and neatly
printed Weekly paper, intended specially for general
circulation throughout the State.
Both of the above named papers will labor to
inculcate, in no dictatorial spirit, sound political prin
ciples and to promote tbe material interests of the
State, and of the City of Portland as its interests
twine with, and are inseparable from, those of the
State.
Politically, the Press will give an earnest, cordial,
and generous support to the administration of Abra
ham Lincoln, who in little more than one year, has
indellibly impressed himself upon the nation's heart
as an incorruptible patriot, an inflexible Chief Mag
istrate, and an honest man; the ability of whose ad
ministration is most signally exhibited, not 'only in
the matchless operations of our aftny and navy, but
in the unparalleled fact that, in the midst of this
gigantic rebellion, our Government securities are
selling at a premium. It will zealously labor to ex
hibit and defend souud Republican principles, and,
inasmuch as political organizations have become a
necessity in carrying into effect great principles of
political economy, and inasmuch as ,thc Republican
party which, in the brief chapter of its history already
written, has successfully rotated the allegation of its
enemies that its designs and tendencies were sec
tional, and triumphantly vindicated its claim to a
just and liberal Nationality, has remained steadfast
in its devotion to theL'niou while other organizations
have so generally become infected with a disloyal
spirit, and inasmuch as it is the only party which at
present seems competent to conserve the great prin
ciples underlying all free Governments, the I*rkrs
will cordially sustain the organization of that party,
not with a design to foster a mere partizan spirit, but
in the full cmiiciousness that it embodies the true
principles upon which our government rests, and af
fords the only available means of accomplishing such
results as a lofty patriotism imperatively demands.
It will neither seek nor endorse any compromises
with men in rebellion against the laws of the land,
but will inculcate loyalty to the great central idea of
ail true democracy—that the majority must govern.
Upon the exciting question of Domestic Slavery, it
may be proper to say, that while the Press will sanc
tion no interference with the constitutional or legal
rights of loyal men, it will neither apologize for au
evil which constitutes the foulest blot upon our
national character, nor attempt to resist the tide of
events that seems destined to sweep from existence
au institution which is the greatest anomaly in a free
government. The emancipation of slavery in the
federal Capital, the co-operation of the Federal with
the loyal State governments, to secure gradual eman
cipation. as proposed by President Lincoln, and all
other constitutional measures looking to a peacetal
removal of our greatest “moral, political and social
evil,” will find in the Press a generous and hearty
support.
mu' iiiu» uisum-iiv announcing me general course
proposed for the Prkm, aud intending that, alike in
war and in peace—in our country's peril and in its
triumph, it shall speak with no uncertain voice, we
do not lose sight of the fact that true men have hon
estly differed, and that, coming by different routes
they now find themselves travelling parallel roads;
and, instead of seeking to widen the differences be
tweeu those who are required by a common patriot
ism to act in concert, the Prem will labor hopefully
to encourage unity of purpose aud harmony of act
ion among all loyal men.
Aside from its political department, the Pres® will
be earnestly devoted to the advancement of the best
interests of the city and State. Its Local Depart
ment will in no case be neglected. Particular atten
tion will be given to the Commercial and Maritime
interests. It will be the aim of its conductors to make
it an indispensable institution of the State, and a ge
nial and welcome visitiy in every work-shop, count
ing-house, and family circle. The Editors, not un
known to the people of Maine, will give their undivi
ded energies to the work before them, and labor to
make such a pa|>er as the city of Portland, the State
of Maine, aud the exigencies of the times demand—
one that shall be true to the popular instincts.
The Portland Daily Press is printed with en
tirely new type, on a sheet as large as that of any
daily in Maine, and issued every morning, (Sun
days excepted,) at £5 per annum. Subscriptions for
lew than sjx mouths, 60 cents per month.
The Maine State Press, large, neatly printed,
aud well filled with the news of the week, and orig
inal and selected Political, Agricultural, Literary and
Miscellaneous reading, making it specially adapted to
the Family Circle, will be issued weekly, at £1.50 per
year, idvariably in advance. To any person sending
the names of jire weir nUttrrifn-rs, cash in advance,
an extra copy will be sent gratis.
